HIGH POINT, N.C. — Two Greensboro men have been arrested in connection with a string of residential burglaries in High Point.

Curtis Mario Benton, 19, and Shamell Devon Tate, 23, have both been charged with 15 counts of burglary.


Police say the two men targeted homes in the northern section of High Point over the past few months. The burglaries were committed during the day when residents were not at home.

The investigation is ongoing and more charges are possible, police say.

Both suspects are in the Guilford County Jail.

    At a first glance they look like circus clowns, which made me laugh. But then I realized they are just silly thieves.

    Did they pay someone to get their hair done that way? Guess we can’t call them “thugs” this time. How about “thugettes”?

    Both these clowns are convicted felons already and for the same thing. They will do a little time and be out again to do it all over again. If we are lucky they will break into someone’s home when the home owner is there and they will get shot.
